Indian Institute of Management - [IIM], Shillong : 9 Answered QuestionsView All

• Top Answer By Karan Luthra on 18-Jan-2021

Ans. The decision depends on what you are looking for, in your MBA. At present, IIM Ranchi is the 2nd fastest growing new IIMs after IIM Trichy. IIM Ranchi is better than IIM Shilong and IIM Rohtak. Although IIM Ranchi has its fair share of shortcomings. The table shows a brief overview of the institutions. Particulars IIM Shillong IIM Ranchi IIM Rohtak Median Salary Rs. 18.76 Lakh Rs. 15.11 Lakh Rs. 13.7 Lakh Fees Rs. 10 Lakh Rs. 7.8 Lakh Rs. 16.55 Lakh IIM Shillong: IIM Shillong has the most beautiful campus but it has a locational disadvantage. The placements and faculty quality suffer due to bad connectivity.  Almost all the faculty at the institute are only from the northeast and Bengal regions.  Due to the bad placement, many students of IIM Ranchi and Trichy refused converts from IIM Shilong.  In the next few years, IIM Shillong will have difficulty in attracting students with present quality.  IIM Ranchi: The way it looks, IIM Ranchi will have its new campus which will be available in 7–10 years.  IIM Ranchi does not give the real IIM experience as the accommodation is far away from the college, students have to travel for nearly an hour each day by bus. Also, these are just buildings with no college atmosphere, no real campus to live in with the faculty, no library, playgrounds is at Khelgaon which are not operational through the day and night, etc. Even though it is the second-fastest-growing IIM, there’s a vast gap between IIM Trichy and IIM Ranchi.  IIM Rohtak: IIM Rohtak also has a locational disadvantage. It used to be in the top 2 new IIM and it has moved far down, in the bottom 3.  No one, who has an idea about IIMs will ever recommend IIM Rohtak over the other new IIM. With the new director, things may improve but the IIMs will have also progressed by then. All the institutes have their own disadvantages. Among the IIMs mentioned in the question, IIM Ranchi is a better alternative.Read more

• Top Answer By Aniket Atul Mahulikar on 20-Nov-2020

Ans. IIFT and new IIMs were established during the same time frame and therefore the choice can be a bit difficult. The list of new IIMs consist of quite good and average institutions like IIM Shillong, IIM Rohtak, IIM Ranchi, IIM Raipur, IIM Sambalpur, IIM Jammu, IIM Visakhapatnam, and IIM Sirmaur. Many of these are performing outstandingly in the field of education but some still lack the requisite reputation. The prominent facts to focus on are described below. Academics: IIFT offers domain-specific courses particularly international business specialization leading to a quite concentrated and exceptional course. Indian Institute Of Management offers Postgraduate education, integrated educational programs, doctoral education, and executive education. The courses provided at IIMs are in every possible stream like HRM, Accounting, Behavioural Sciences, Marketing, Business Mathematics, Public Policy, Statistics, and general management. Fee Structure: IIMs have a fee range of Rs. 19 Lakhs to Rs. 21 Lakhs for its different courses. IIFT although has an affordable range, only the executive course reaches the maximum limit of Rs. 90 Lakhs. The eligibility for the institutes is a valid CAT/ GMAT score. Ranking & Acceptability IIFT has been definitely ranked higher and better than most of the new IIM. It is generally preferred by individuals who want to establish their career in trade, logistics, or export. Many new IIM was established in 2015 or 2016; due to which they still lack the favourability factor. IIM can be preferred by individuals looking for IIM tags while IIFT definitely opens up new doors of possibilities. Placement details: IIFT has by far backed up a 100% placement record offering Rs. 1 crore; with an average package of Rs. 20 LPA. In the case of new IIMs mostly the average package lands between Rs. 10 to Rs. 15 LPA. IIM definitely comes up with a crème de la crème concept and it, therefore, guarantees a bright future ahead; but in the case of individuals having a specialized interest in trade & logistics IIFT is a sure-shot option. New IIMs are definitely a good choice in front of other private institutes as the fee range turns out to be the same. IIM Raipur, IIM Ranchi, and IIM Shillong can definitely be chosen.Read more

    Academics is just one part of the MBA institute. Networking is another. Because of its small batch size, you get to know all the people well. Also Shillong is a beautiful place to live, thanks to its weather. As the college is situated on a hill, you can actually see clouds in the campus, and hence the name. There are many tourist destinations nearby which can be visited to blow off the steam.
